Hey you, it’s been way too long.

Ah, the much ignored website. What can we say, it’s easy to forget about this page without the constant notifications and reminders that it is there and people are looking at it. Since we last updated, we had a tour. We had a great tour actually, out to Alberta and back. Big thanks to all the venues, friends, bands, and fans both old and new. We can’t wait to do it again.

So what are we up to? We’ve started the recording process for our new album, which is looking like it is going to turn our just unbelievable. But this is gonna be a very long process so we won’t focus on that for this post. Look for more updates on that in the months to come. Right now we are focused on our summer shows!

June 24th @ Lucky Bar – Victoria w/ Adam Barter & Nevil Meyer. This is the Victoria Rock of The Woods PreParty. Everyone with a ticket to this show will get a discount on Rock of The Woods festival tickets, and it will just be a great time. We are playing last, and I’m guessing will get enough time to pull out all the stops. If we get enough time, we might even add some softer gems into our all our headliner rock assault. :)

July 8th @ The Cobblestone Pub – Cobble Hill w/Deep Sea Gypsies This is a little over a year coming for us. We were booked to play a gig with these monsters of bluesy southern rock at The Black Swan in Shawnigan Lake back then and tragedy struck their camp and it needed to be revisited. So stoked to play with these guys, one of the best fits for a stacked RnR bill I can think of in this area. Show starts at 9:30 sharp and both bands will get long enough sets to dig deep into their catalogs.

July 9th @ Royal Canadian Legion Branch #65 – Tofino w/Steve Bick and Roys Bag We honestly don’t know much about the bands we are playing with at this point, but man it is in one of the most beautiful places in this county in the middle of summer. I’ve (Ryan) have never played Tofino before somehow and I’m super grateful that the opportunity has come up. Bring your tent and come up and enjoy Tofino with us. Evidently when they put on a show, they put on a party. Looking forward to it.

July 21-24 @ Rock of The Woods – in the beautiful Cowichan Valley w/ Vince Vaccarro, WiL, LABS, Dylan Stone Band, and much much more. This is our second time around playing this festival. It was the high lite of last summeer and I expect it may be once again this year. Ryan and Nat from The Bad will be doing something special and stripped down for this set. Trying to keep it fresh. If you need tickets for this event, email us at thebadvictoria@gmail.com or ryan@thebad.ca .

July 28th – Music in The Park – Cobble Hill – Ryan will be playing a solo set of originals and covers that have influenced him as a writer, player, and singer. All acoustic and harmonica. Playing folk singer for a day. This event is on every Thursday all summer and will feature a variety of different musicians, this one being Ryan only.

Aug 4th – Music in The Park – Bruce Springsteen & Neil Young Tribute featuring Ryan Olszewski of The Bad, and Dylan Stone.

Aug 6th @ The China Cloud, Vancouver – Our return to Vancouver after playing the last show ever at legendary venue The Railway Club. This will be a two bander with The Bad headlining and the first show by some good friends. More details to come, these studs still need to line up a name. But it is chock full of heavy hitters. Gonna be a ripper.

That’s it for now folks, I’m just gonna leave this here. Come on out and join the fun, see you in the sun.
